Local mail routed through smart host

Hi all,

I'm having problems setting up local delivery in a SBS 2000 with Exchange 2000. Here's the info:

- server is registered with a local domain (example: server.domain-a.local)
- email is downloaded using POP connector (works OK)
- email is currently sent directly using SMTP connector with DNS (does not work for certain servers who request static IPs or a real domain name)

I can set up the server to use a smart host, however when I do this, local emails are also forwarded to our ISP's server and then downloaded through the POP connector! It works but it's of course a waste of bandwidth and time.

All the email addresses from 2 domains are handled by this server (example: domain-a.com and domain-b.com), and these domain names are setup in the recipient policies from Exchange.

Any ideas?

I think you posted the wrong link... This article explains: "Error code 0x80040301 appears when you try to move a mailbox in Exchange Server 2003"

Thanks for the quick response anyhow... I'll look into the Microsoft support section and see what I can find...
